So is it possible to have bugs, which belong to several packages
at once?  I did not know this before.

Is this the proposed fix or is this the problem?

The fdutils postinst contains the lines

        if [ "$DEBIAN_FRONTEND" ]; then
            DEBIAN_FRONTEND=`echo "$DEBIAN_FRONTEND" | tr A-Z a-z`
        fi
        
        if [ "$DEBIAN_FRONTEND" != "noninteractive" ] \
            && dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt "5.2.0.1998-07-01-3"; then
        ...

which seems ok to me.  What is the problem you see?

Confused,
Jochen
